Abstract
The selective oxidation of methane has been studied both in the presen ce and absence of solids (inert or catalysts) with and without NO adde d, at 1 bar of total pressure. NO enhances the yield to formaldehyde, while the solids favor its decomposition. These results, together with abundant literature data, show a maximum for formaldehyde yield of ab out 4.0%.
